    Thanks Barbara!! I was enjoying my morning watermelon/canteloupe while watching this video and am glad to see I’ve got my 2 servings of fruit in already. A 7 green drink later this morning, should help move me toward the number of veggie servings you recommend 🙂

    Thanks for the info, I do tend to eat more fruit than I do veggies and never gave thought to the amount of sugar in fruit.

    I really enjoy the video’s – please keep them coming.

    Happy Monday Barbara.
